  • Mercedes CLS320 CDI facelift (2008) review

    Price:  £46,255

    24 April 2008 by Chris Chilton

    It’s facelift time for Merc’s banana-shaped CLS, a coupe/saloon crossover based on the dull old E-class. It hasn’t been around for long so there are no big changes for this mid-life refresh, just...

    21 April 2008 by Georg Kacher

    It's been a long wait, but we've finally driven Mercedes' new junior off-roader, the GLK

  • Mercedes SL63 AMG (2008) review

    Price:  £94,000

    09 March 2008 by Chris Chilton

    Mercedes’ SL gets a new face for 2008 but there’s far more to the SL63 AMG than simple cosmetic surgery. As the name suggests, the big Benz sports car finally adopts the naturally aspirated V8...

  • Mercedes SLK350 (2008) review

    Price:  £36,000

    06 February 2008 by Nick Trott

    After 185,000 sales of the second-generation SLK (and 310,000 of the first), Mercedes-Benz has given its little sportster a raft of enhancements, improvements and other things ending in ‘ments’ . It...

  • Mercedes C180 SE (2008) review

    Price:  £22,937

    07 January 2008 by Glen Waddington

    Four cylinders? A manual gearbox? Not traditionally attractive territory for a Mercedes, especially if you’re talking petrol rather than diesel. But Mercedes hopes you’ll go for this car rather than...

  • Mercedes C220 CDI estate (2007) review

    19 September 2007 by Ged Maxwell

    Ooh, a compact exec estate. What combination of sport/tourer/Avant/wagon is it called? None: the Mercedes C-Class estate is, well, just that. Plain old estate. And the largest premium-class estate at...

  • Mercedes C63 AMG (2007) review

    Price:  £50,000

    27 August 2007 by Georg Kacher

    So this is Merc’s answer to the new BMW M3... Got it. Hot C's have long been part of Mercedes' line-up, but none has had us quite as excited as this, the C63 which as the name suggests, gets the big...

  • Mercedes McLaren SLR Roadster (2007) review

    Price:  £350,000

    24 July 2007 by Georg Kacher

    That name's quite a mouthful, isn’t it? Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster is indeed a tongue twister. And make sure you get Merc and McLaren the right way round, otherwise the men from Germany will...

  • Mercedes C220 CDI Sport (2007) review

    Price:  £28,002

    19 June 2007 by Peter Burgess

    It looks like there’s a major change going on here Certainly is. Gone are the smooth curves of the previous C-class, replaced with something far more edgy and, dare we say it, rather modern. The...

  • Mercedes CL65 AMG (2007) review

    Price:  £149,565

    22 May 2007 by Nick Trott

    Looks like a bit of a beast. Is this another warp-enabled starship from AMG? Yep. This is Mercedes’ big CL-class coupe fitted with AMG’s ballistic 6.0-litre V12 bi-turbo engine and a bunch of...

  • Mercedes CLK63 AMG Black Series (2008) review

    Price:  £100,000

    16 May 2007 by Nick Trott

    Black Series? Sounds posh and a little edgy. What's all that about then? AMG groups its cars into five divisions. The Black Series machines are second only to the borderline psychotic and...

  • Mercedes C350 Sport (2007) review

    Price:  £35,577

    12 March 2007 by Richard Aucock

    Seven years since the last, an all-new C-Class. What are the highlights? Mercedes has gone back to basics with the new C. Keen to banish memories of the E-class quality/breakdown/recall debacle, it...

  • Mercedes SLK200 Edition 10 (2007) review

    05 March 2007 by Chris Chilton

    So what's Mercedes come up with to mark the SLK's first decade? The SLK Edition 10, a special version of the roadster with some very special paint. No different mechanically from the existing...

  • Mercedes McLaren SLR 722 Edition (2007) review

    Price:  £350,000

    02 February 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    Are you telling me this beast has 722bhp under the bonnet? Not quite. The 722 – or the Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR 722 Edition to quote its full name – is a limited run of tweaked SLRs, named after the...

  • Mercedes E500 facelift (2006) review

    Price:  £47,717

    21 December 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    You’ve used the wrong picture, that’s the old E-class, sort yourselves out! Well, Mercedes calls it the ‘new’ E-class but it’s really a heavily revised version of the model launched four years ago.

    10 October 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    Hang on a tick – didn’t you drive this last week? No, that was the CL63, the coupe version of the S-class driven here. But I can understand your confusion. Mercedes has just taken the wraps off two of...

  • Mercedes CL63 (2006) AMG review

    05 October 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    Another Mercedes AMG model – is there no stopping these power-crazed Germans? Yes, another AMG, and no, there’s no stopping them. Not that we're complaining. When the CL63 AMG arrives here next March...

  • Mercedes GL420 CDI (2006) review

    Price:  £63,872

    26 September 2006 by Nathan Millward

    Another over-inflated luxury 4x4? Fair point. There is a whiff of Groundhog Day about the GL-Class but with seven seats, a host of new engines and comfort to match a luxury saloon, it could be worth...

  • Mercedes CL600 (2006) review

    Price:  £107,097

    13 September 2006 by Georg Kacher

    Who would buy a CL when they could have an S-class or, more likely, an SL? You’d be surprised just how many people have fallen for the blend of S-class refinement, seating for four and a sharper...

    07 August 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    My, that looks a bit of a beast! You're not wrong there. Mercedes new R63 AMG, which tops Mercedes' new range of six-seat R-models, is just what you'd expect it to be. Vast, fast, luxurious and with...
